Toniann Richard is CEO of the Health Care Collaborative (HCC) of Rural Missouri. With help from her staff, executive board and partners, HCC is one of the country’s foremost rural health networks. The nonprofit also owns and operates FQHCs in Buckner, Carrollton, Concordia, Waverly, and Independence. HCC Network is supported by multiple state and federal funds, regional foundations, various partners, and investments. Toniann, who began her journey at HCC in 2007, has raised millions in grant funding that directly fuels programs that close access barriers to care for the underserved. Toniann has grown her staff from 2 FTEs to over 100 FTEs. Toniann, her husband Pat, and daughter Grace reside in Oak Grove, Mo.

Our community-based programs include case management, counseling and assessment, health education, transportation, translation services, enrollment assistance, health and social care advocacy initiatives, access to primary care, and health IT.

HCC and its Community Health Centers serve all patients regardless of ability to pay. Discounts for essential services are offered based on family size and income. Schedule a visit: 660.259.2440.

After more than a decade and nearly 50 new employees later, it’s safe to say that the Lexington, MO-based HCC Network is a major player in Lafayette County and in rural health care in this region.

The focus of HCC is to develop and implement programs that are responsive to documented health needs of county residents, with specific health status indicators as benchmarks of progress.
